Alanna Irving from the Open Collective team interviewed Brooke on Witchcraft: the magic of math, functional programming, and community.

Did you know she started in music composition?

Programming absolutely scratches the same part of my brain as music composition. Instead of writing instructions for an instrumentalist, you’re writing it for a computer, but the parallels are very clear. All but one person in my composition cohort (who became a professor of music) are now programmers, because it was a crash course in that way of thinking.

It's a great overview of Brooke's background, her love of functional programming and math, and the Witchcraft library for Elixir.
